A bright room in a quiet street, but close to everything Manchester has to offer...
You will be staying in a light airy private room with a comfortable king-size bed, and have shared access to the bathroom, kitchen and living space.
I like to keep my home bright, cosy and relaxed - many people have commented on its welcoming atmosphere, and its fantastic location.
You'll only be sharing with me (and my cat) and you may come and go as you please while you're here.
I have a small private garden (which you will have to use if you want to smoke please), but if you want to share a bottle of wine and a chat, you are welcome to join me round the kitchen table!
There is off-road parking for your car, or for an extra £15 I can pick you up from the airport - cheaper than a taxi and you won't have to worry about finding the address!
The house also has WiFi which you are welcome to use for no charge, and breakfast is part of the deal - on a help-yourself basis.
I am a friendly person who enjoys entertaining and introducing people to Manchester. I have a busy social life but also like to curl up at home with a book or a film. I love animals and have a shy but very affectionate cat called Rhea.
I speak some French, and I also have lots of experience of explaining British ways to confused overseas visitors, so just ask me if you need directions or advice! I look forward to meeting you.
Chorlton (email hidden)ly neighbourhood in south Manchester; slightly bohemian in character with lots of quirky shops, bars and places to eat, but located only three miles from Manchester city centre and well-connected by frequent tram and bus services.
My house is in a quiet street, with a great local bar, a late-opening mini-supermarket (with cashpoint) and an artisan bakery literally just around the corner. On warm nights you can smell the fresh bread being baked, which is delicious!
There is also a wide range of pubs, restaurants and interesting shops within walking distance - check out the 'guidebook' attached to this listing.
I am also very happy to give you information and recommendations for things to do, places to eat out etc in Manchester and beyond.
Besides being an exciting, stylish city with interesting history and architecture, and a vibrant nightlife, this is also a good base for exploring the North West of England - it's easy to get to Liverpool, Chester, the Pennines, Leeds and the Lake District from here.
The house itself is within walking distance to Old Trafford (15 mins to the cricket ground, about 25 mins to the football stadium) for matches, music concerts or the stadium tour.
It's also an easy tram journey to The Lowry arts centre and Media City complex at Salford Quays, and there are regular bus services to the Trafford Centre shopping & entertainment complex.
I am an experienced host, and have had guests stay here from all over the world, some wanting a quiet base for a work visit, some just wanting to relax and explore Manchester - get in touch and let me know how I can make your stay enjoyable!

Very clean and comfortable house with a lovely cat. Stayed there with my girlfriend and everything was perfekt. Helen prepared a folder with a lot of information about the area and what you can do there. Good place if you want to eat something in beautiful cosy restaurants. For example Juans Tapas Bar :)
Belle chambre tranquille,dans un agréable quartier de Chorlton (Manchester). Très bon accueil de Helen ainsi que des recommandations abondantes et pertinentes sur les (website hidden) plus grande discrétion de L'hote.
Helen has a nice cosy house in a quiet street with a very friendly cat.
was very impressed with the guide book Helen has created for the guests. Made me wish I could stay a bit longer to visit (I was only there for one night because I had business in Manchester).
Convenient, relaxed and an accommodating host. Would definitely stay again.
I had a wonderful stay in Helen's clean, cosy and warm house in Chorlton while visiting family. It was great to come back to an oasis of calm after spending all day with my lively niece and nephews!
I've been visiting Manchester for almost 20 years, but I still learned some new things about the city and Chorlton from Helen's very helpful folder of information.
I stayed with Helen for a week to visit a friend in Manchester and had a great time using Airbnb for the first time. The room is a king sized bed and the tram station is within walking distance. I got a 7-day tram pass for only about 15 pounds. Helen was gracious and allowed me and my friend to use the kitchen to cook dinner one night which was great. She also knows a lot about the city and where to go.
Stayed with Helen for a weekend as I was over to Manchester to watch Man Utd at Old Trafford. Perfect location, quiet, safe and within walking distance to Old Trafford (20-25 min walk). Also easy to get to the centre, 20 min by bus.
Helen as a host was just like I had read about :)
Picked me up at the airport and very easy to speak with and be around. Shared a cup of tea and it was just like visiting a friend you have not seen for a while.
Would without a doubt stay there again :)
Helen's place was one of our favorites out of 6 different stays during a 2 week vacation. She was very nice and informative of the city. If you are going to see a Manchester football or cricket game then this is the place to stay! It is about a 5-10 minute walk to Old Trafford which really beats the crowds on the way out. There were several nice restaurants next to her home as well. Her cat is very friendly! Helen even took us to the airport when we had to leave.
Helen was wonderful! We had an embarrassing amount of luggage, so her picking us up from the train station was a huge help. Our stay was brief--just a stop over before catching a very early flight the next day--but I wish it'd been longer! The bed was comfortable and the house overall was lovely, and Helen was very kind. I would highly recommend people to stay with her.
Helen is a friendly host, the bed is comfortable and the kettle was on before my shoes were off. I will be staying again.
